If an accused gets out on bail, what conditions will they have to follow?

Bail conditions are rules that the accused has to follow while they are out on bail. The conditions will vary, but they will be related to the charges the accused is facing.
For example if the accused is charged with assault, the conditions will likely include:

  • Not to contact the alleged victim;
  • Not to go to the alleged victim’s home, workplace or school;
  • Not to have any weapons (e.g. guns, knives etc.)

If the accused is released on bail with a surety to supervise them, they sometimes have to live with their surety.

Every accused who is released on bail will have a condition that they must attend court when required.
